Monache High School’s Aislin Taylor flew by the competition Saturday afternoon to take first overall at the Golden West Cross Country Invitational.

FRESNO — All season the talk around the Valley was that Porterville High School boys were going to win the Central Section Division IV championship.

On Thursday the Panthers did that and more with Porterville’s Jorge Sanchez placing first to win the city’s first individual boys title since as far back as anyone can remember Thursday at Woodward Park in Fresno.

The senior finished the 5,000-meter race in 16 minutes, 42.7 seconds. It wasn’t a personal record, but the first-year runner led for nearly the entire race — except for when he got lost.

It made it even more painful didn’t go how I wanted but it’s a win.”

Despite getting lost, Sanchez still finished 13.6 seconds ahead of Chowchilla’s Connor Borba (16:56.3, 2nd) to claim the Valley title. The accomplishment is still something Sanchez hasn’t processed yet.
